Rauchway created more of a story with factual information making it more engaging to the reader. I felt the arguments that Rauchway provided were fairly accurate creating a balance of both sides of the story. With being engaged in the novel, it helped me understand a time in history that I never understood before. I was able to understand more of Roosevelt’s direction of his presidency as he helped America become hopeful of the future. After the assassination many citizens were devastated, but it came to their realization that it was a wakeup call for the political system.
WHO WAS TO BLAME FOR THE BOSTON MASSACRE? HISTORY 1301 DIPU SHRESTHA According to the textbook who was to blame for the Boston Massacre, several Boston resident were shot and killed by British Soldiers on the night of March 5, 1770, in what became known as Boston Massacre. The Boston Massacre discusses the most important events that turned the colonial sentiment against the" King George III and the British acts and taxes." The showdown between the British and the local people was not simply a war of words "blood was shed over the class of ideals." Davidson, James Wheeler.
British soldiers were sent to Boston and fired upon the Boston mob, leaving five men dead after the end of the chaos. Trials took place to defend the soldiers in order to defend their rights as individuals. A fast occurrence, though, placed a scar onto the colonists to propel them to fight against Britain. During the late 1700’s, rules and regulations were placed to subdue the colonies and raise money after the French-and-Indian war, as too Britain’s Seven-Year-War. In replace of the Stamp Act of 1765, a new act, under the financial leader, Charles Townshend, the Townshend Acts were added to place a tax upon certain imported goods.
Later they would realize that this attitude towards Great Britain is what put them on the path to revolution. I found Anderson’s lecture enticing and very interesting. I liked how he spoke about some famous people that were involved in the war, such as George Washington, who also had a major impact on the war. Anderson considers Washington the founder of the successful American empire. At the end of his lecture, when Anderson allowed questions I thought that was really cool because you were able to think about his lecture from other people’s perspective.
These victories were followed up by General William Henry by a defeat of British and Indian forces at the Battle of Thames where The British General Tecumseh was slain in the battle. Although the tide of war gradually turned in Britain's favor when British warships sailed up the Chesapeake bay towards Washington where troops stormed the capital of America and burned it to the ground along with other government buildings. Two years of warfare went by where America was making no apparent progress on the Canadian frontier until news from the Southwest arose abou... ... middle of paper ... ...ange their minds about the subject. I would say that the Missouri compromise caught my attention the most for the fact that the North and the South actually came to a compromise on such a bitter topic between the two. It obviously didn't provide a permanent resolution to the issue but still I was very surprised about the dealt that was struck.
With all the revolting against Great Britain, there had been a leader, that leader would have to have been Samuel Adams. Sam Adams had piloted many revolts including one of the most popular, Boston’s Tea Party. He also urged the boycotting of all British trading with the American colonies. Later he served as governor of Massachusetts from 1793 to 1797(Chidsey,95). On June 10th, 1768, the HMS Romney, one of British’s warships detained John Hancock and the Liberty and indicted them with the charge of tax evasion.
The Boston Massacre On March 5, 1770, colonists were taunting a British sentry outside the Customs House. This was common for a day in colonized America. However, this day was more meaningful than any other before. The British sentry retaliated causing a considerable mob of colonists to get involved. Then some more British came to aid their comrade.
The famous Sir Matthew Hale, who flourished during the civil war, the commonwealth and the period of the restoration of monarchy, repeatedly sentenced persons to death accused of witch craft. The Puritans brought the belief with them to America. They established laws for the punishment of witches, and before 1648, four people had suffered death for the supposed offence, in the neighborhood of Boston. The ministers of the gospel there were shadowed by the delusion, and because of their powerful social influence, they did more to foster the wild excitement and produce the distressing results of what is known in history as "Salem witch craft," than all others. In 1688, a wayward daughter of John Goodwin of Boston, about thirteen years of age, accused a servant girl of stealing some of the family linen.
In 1856 the same group attacked the Kansas territory where Brown and his family resided, which much like anyone would he saw as a threat and attacked in revenge killing 5 pro-slavery activists. Not much later the activists retaliated killing Browns son (Utter 1883). Brown and a group of men planned to go to Harpers Ferry, Virginia and seize the U.S arsenal. His plan was funded by various wealthy northern abolitionists and on October 16, 1859 his plan started to come into action. After the two-day battle back and forth between Browns men and the U.S Marines, seventeen people had died and Brown was arrested and put to trial, which led to the jury decision on November 2, 1859 for him to be hanged for murder and treason.
The troops fired, killing five people. The so-called Boston Massacre aroused great colonial resentment. This anger was soon increased by further parliamentary legislation. Bowing to colonial economic boycotts, Parliament, guided by the new prime minister, Lord Frederick North, repealed the Townshend Acts in 1770 but retained the
